ALPGRIDS
Increasing RES uptake through Microgrids in the Alps
Home

Overview

Some rural Alpine regions do not have reliable and sufficient energy supply; as a result, they are exposed to blackouts. ALPGRIDS promoted local and sustainable energy production through microgrids in the Alpine region. The project did not only boost low-carbon communities and reduced billing volatility but also helped to prevent blackouts in the partner villages by providing local and reliable energy. As part of the project, the ALPGRIDS network was established. Thanks to this network, smart grids were developed and replicated in five European countries, namely Austria, Germany, France, Italy and Slovenia.
